Eve Leonard is an abstract painter living and working in Houston, Texas. She works primarily in oils and mixed media to create art that evokes a sense of landscape, experienced and remembered.
Born in Utah and having lived on both coasts, she was immersed in the broad vistas and nuanced textures of the natural world. Her work draws from her travels. Drawing, painting and taking photos on location provides a jumping-off point for her intuitive abstract works.
Eve is devoted to bold use of color and gestural mark-making, layering, hiding and revealing the subject. Her also work includes drawings, gauche and watercolor paintings, and collage. She has expanded the landscape into the calligraphic printmaking, adding blocks of color with paint or collage. Eve studied creative writing, fiction, and poetry in graduate school and is a published writer. Her paintings often are inspired by a line of poetry and a narrative quality can be found within her abstract landscapes.
